This page is inspired by the case of Erik Lamberg, 51, a father and husband diagnosed as bi-polar, who has been missing since May 23, 2013, and is dedicated to all persons with mental illness who have not found their way home.
Missing loved ones who have a serious mental illness is an epidemic problem. Sometimes the person has deliberately disappeared in response to stigma -- out of shame, or not wanting to "burden" others; sometimes their illness keeps them from finding their way home; accident, murder, and suicide are also possibilities. To the ones left behind, not knowing is an agonizing dilemma.
